The Recession’s Ongoing Impact on Children, 2012: Indicators of Children’s Economic Well-Being, uses unemployment and lagged poverty estimates to forecast child poverty rates in 2012.

The report predicts the national child poverty rate will remain elevated at 22.5 percent–more than one in every five children in the country. In North Carolina, the child poverty rate is expected to remain among the highest in the country at 26 percent.

The report also examines nutrition and employment data and finds that in North Carolina:

  • An estimated 1 in 10 children lived with an unemployed parent in 2012, more than twice the rate at the start of the recession (four percent in 2007).
  • An estimated 118,000 children lived with parents who were unemployed for six months or more in 2012, up from 23,000 in 2007.
  • The number of SNAP recipients nearly doubled in 2012 (1,157–a 90 percent increase since 2007).

Nationally:

  • An estimated 1 in 10 children lived with an unemployed parent in 2012, more than twice the rate at the start of the recession (four percent in 2007).
  • An estimated 118,000 children lived with parents who were unemployed for six months or more in 2012, up from 23,000 in 2007.
  • The number of SNAP recipients nearly doubled in 2012 (1,157–a 90 percent increase since 2007).
